Editor note: Translate to English Deutlich hefiger und dadurch etwas gedeckter, leicht nussiger Duft nach sehr reifem Steinobst, etwas gelben Melonen und kandierten Zitrusfrüchten mit erdigen und kräuterigen Noten, viel Mineralik, ein wenig Wachs und welkem Laub. Reife, sehr fest gewirkte, teils kandierte Frucht im Mund, vegetabile, kräuterige und noch ganz leicht krautige Töne, feine, präsente Säure, im Hintergrund herbe, erdige Mineralik, viel Griff, sehr gute Substanz und Nachhaltigkeit, leichter Gerbstoff, florale Töne und Spuren von Wacholder, wird mit Luft immer klarer und kompakter, noch extrem jung, sehr guter Abgang.

Viticulture was established by the colonization of the Greeks in Gaul and then brought to perfection by the Roman culture. The conquest of Gaul by Julius Caesar (100-44 BC) brought Roman viticulture from...
